Illustration Friday - Theory


I must admit, I felt a little stumped how to approach "theory." I automatically thought of calculus but decided I wanted to try something a little less common. So, the theory I came up with was the theory that I used to explain life to my baby brother - that he was born from a monkey and a crocodile, and that's why he cried, chewed on everything, and climbed all over the walls. He eventually realized that I wasn't being exactly honest with him, but thankfully we're still close despite my deception. I drew the image with my daughters in mind, seeing the similarities between me and my little brother and my eldest daughter and her baby sister.

Don't all kids come from monkeys!! It seems like mine do from time to time!

I like how you get so much expression with so few lines.
